Have I spent my winter soaking up God’s goodness?

I love spring and its variety of colors, especially after a winter full of muted shades. But to get there means rain, and we’ve had our fair share here in South Carolina.

“When a farmer’s land has had many showers upon it and good crops come up, that land has experienced God’s blessing upon it. But if it keeps on having crops of thistles and thorns, the land is considered no good and is ready for condemnation and burning off.” – Hebrews 6:7-8 TLB

As believers, we can drink God’s goodness and use it to produce things of value and beauty. Some may say the blessing God promises is material, but I think the blessing is eternal. If we cultivate thorns and thistles, our fruit will be useless.

What are those weeds? They come in many forms: bitterness, anger, gossip, laziness, meanness…  You can add to the list, but Ephesians 4:29-32 sums it up best.

Choose today to soak in God’s goodness, water your soul, and cultivate something valuable and beautiful.
